With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out.

What is baldness or hair loss and why? How could grow up hair once again on the scalp?

Hair loss: Male pattern baldness is related to your genes and male sex hormones. It usually follows a pattern of receding hairline and hair thinning on the crown, and is caused by hormones and genetic predisposition. Each strand of hair you have sits in a tiny hole (cavity) in the skin called a follicle. Baldness in general occurs when the hair follicle shrinks over time, resulting in shorter and finer hair. ...Read more

What is the use of flucinonide .05% soln for hair/scalp? Is it for dandruff or stop hair loss?

Steroid: Fluocinonide is a potent topical steroid and as a solution, it can be used in the scalp (avoids creams and ointments that mess up the hair). It is an anti-inflammatory drug--to reduce inflammation. So if you have red, itchy scalp or a condition that causes round patches of hair loss (alopecia areata) it can be used for that.

Man up: Chances are that you are having telogen effluvium and it will self-cure. Get with your barber and maybe he will advise you as to whether this is the cause, or whether you have a fungus, or something else.

I've hair loss since 2 years ago still suffering when I use minoxdil and finastride it stops but when I stop it starts again now my scalp is visible?

PRP: I really like PRP in hair that is thinning, but not necessarily to the point of wanting a transplant yet. You can get improvement with just one treatment, but usually really good results with 2-3 treatments, one every 3-4 months. Topical minoxidil and finasteride oral can be helpful as well, but require continuous daily dosing. Light/laser treatments might be helpful also. ...Read more
